Cards made for World Cardmaking Day yesterday, and a step by step tutorial

Hello crafty friends!

Yesterday I participated in The Paper Crafting´s cyber crop event
on World Cardmaking Day.
It´s an event for people from Sweden, Norway and Denmark. We got three prompts
to be insprired by, and you can find them here below along with my cards.

This is my first card, inspired by the photo below.
I used the Rubber Dance stamp sets Floral Wreath, Crazy Flowers #2 and 
Whale Wishes. I also used a That´s Crafty stencil TC8037 for the background.

This is my second card, that I wrote a post about yesterday.
I used That´s Crafty stamp set Shroom Sweet Shroom, and the sentiment is from
a Rubber Dance stamp set Four Seasons.
If you missed it you can find the video tutorial HERE.

I also made these three smaller cards for the #2 prompt.
I used That´s Crafty Doodled Butterflies and Leaves stamp set, and the 
sentiments from Rubber Dance Floral Wreath stamp set.

This is my third card, inspired by the colours and style of the prompt below.

Here´s what I did:

On a piece of watercolour paper I use That´s Crafty Light Texture paste 
through the TC8024 stencil.

I use the Aubergine and Lilac Lustre Sprays and the Rose Flat Matte spray
to colour a piece of watercolour paper to create the flowers.

I punch out the flowers and wrinkle them up while wet and let them dry.

I use the Gold Lustre spray with water the first layer,
and then add some splashes with the spray.

I assemble the flowers.

I stamp and cut out some feathers from the Rubber Dance 
Dreamcatcher stamp set and colour them with Aqua Flat Matte spray.

I create a little tag and stamp with Rubber Dance Old Book Page stamp and 
Dream from the Dreamcatcher stamp set.

Here is my finished card!

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you found some cardmaking 
inspiration here on my blog today!
